Carter, Lora officially sent to Mets to complete Wagner trade


As has been widely suspected for some time, the New York Mets are confirming that Chris Carter (pictured) and Eddie Lora have officially been sent to the Mets to complete the trade of Billy Wagner to Boston. The trade, which occurred on August 25th, could not be completed immediately because Carter was on the 40-man roster and needed to clear waivers in order to be traded. However, he was claimed by the New York Yankees, delaying the completion of the deal until the end of the regular season.

Carter, who spent the majority of his season in Pawtucket, was named SoxProspects.com Player of the Month for August/September of 2009, as well as a SoxProspects.com All Star at designated hitter. He compiled a line of .295/.358/.466 with 16 home runs and 61 RBI in 427 at-bats for Pawtucket. He was originally acquired in August 2007 from the Washington Nationals in exchange for Wily Mo Peña.

Lora had been a member of the Red Sox organization for the past three seasons after signing as an international free agent in July 2006. In 2008, Lora was named the Red Sox Minor League Latin Player of the Year, posting a .300/.455/.492 line in a 120 at-bats for the DSL Red Sox. In 2009, Lora posted a .222/.287/.414 line in 34 games in the GCL.
